Real Estate & Art de Vivre
It may seem as though the city of London, its property market, its historical architecture, and its storied buildings date back to antiquity, while contemporary real estate projects appear as relatively new concepts. But renting an apartment at the exceptional Residences at the Four Seasons Hotel at Ten Trinity Square blurs the line between the past and the present.
A place of historical grandiosity, Ten Trinity Square is a magnificent Neoclassical structure initially built in the 1920s as the headquarters of the Port of London Authority, an emblem of prosperity. Designed by the renowned architect Sir Edwin Cooper, it dazzled at Tower Hill on the shores of the River Thames with the grandeur of its limestone colonnade, monumental central staircase, stately statues, and sparkling marble lobby; not to mention The Rotunda and its stunning Art-Deco ceiling, embodying the glamour of the Roaring Twenties and earning the status of a Grade II-listed heritage building. Unfortunately, Ten Trinity Square was not protected from the dangers of the times and suffered devastating blows during the Second World War.
In a more recent turn of events, the Four Seasons hotel group decided to completely restore this classic building. While maintaining its period atmosphere, the re-work revealed even more interesting details, such as Roman ruins from over 2,000 years ago. In 2017, the Four Seasons Hotel at Ten Trinity Square, the group’s second property in London (the other located at Park Lane in Mayfair), opened to the public. The following year, its new development of rental residences was put on the market.
It’s rare to be able to indulge in an extended stay in a piece of historical heritage set in the heart of the city of London. It’s even rarer to stay in an iconic landmark transformed into an ultra high-end living environment of luxury hospitality. The Residences at the Four Seasons Hotel at Ten Trinity Square opens it decadent doors to long-term guests and part-time residents.
